the paper says ms lagarde believes global warming should be a "mission critical" priority. president trump has signed democracy legislation backing protesters in hong kong despite angry objections from china is on the front page of the new york times. we have of course mentioned this story. variety are reporting that star wars actorjohn boyega has admitted that he was the one that left a top secret script under his bed which then ended up for sale on ebay. and the independent devotes half of its front page to the broadcaster and critic clive james, who died yeaterday at the age of 80. with me is inga beale, from london first, a not—for—profit group made up of business leaders from across the city. and of course in the uk you would expect a lot of politics on the front pages. the times, looking at the u gulf bowl, which has been done for the times. —— yougov pole. it
predicts borisjohnson for the times. —— yougov pole. it predicts boris johnson could for the times. —— yougov pole. it predicts borisjohnson could get a majority. we always have to be a bit cautious about these polls. when i look at the stories that are appearing on the front pages of the media, of course you realise that you have got to be very careful that they are giving a certain view and it is all a bit skewed and slanted. i think it is becoming ever more noticeable that it is sort of moving really extreme, and i think for anybody who really wants to keep abreast of what is going on it is important to read several media sources. otherwise we are never going to get a balanced view in the lead up to the election. absolutely, extremely important. this times article which i read earlier, it is looking out the fact that the yougov poll on the 2017 elections was one of the few that are addicted they would be a hung parliament outcome, which of course was correct. —— that predicted there would be. no majority for theresa may at the time. if this were to be correct, if
we we re time. if this were to be correct, if we were to have a government with a majority, presumably things could get done within parliament. but would be good, would it? get done within parliament. but would be good, would mm get done within parliament. but would be good, would it? it is good, andi would be good, would it? it is good, and i think for business they want a bit of certainty. we underestimate sometimes the impact these elections are going to have on the rest of the world. the rest of the world is looking at us, they want to see some more stability, they want to see this hesitation about what we are really wa nt this hesitation about what we are really want to do, whether it is about brexit or other policies, we need some certainty to settle businesses down and give investor confidence back. the guardian of course has its slant on this sort of electioneering that is going on. it is looking at the secret papers that jeremy corbyn has produced today, he says the conservatives want to sell out the national health service, and this is the realfear, isn't it? if we we re this is the realfear, isn't it? if we were to leave the european union and broker a free trade deal with anybody, as far as the us is concerned, the real fear
anybody, as far as the us is concerned, the realfear is anybody, as far as the us is concerned, the real fear is that they've got today eyes on our national health service. one of the big parts of the story is, what will it do to the price of drugs? one of the big challenges that has been revealed in this is the us saying, how are you pricing the drugs? there isa how are you pricing the drugs? there is a few that the pricing is being kept artificially low. i am not an expert on drug pricing but i know there are huge differences, having lived in other parts of the world i know that you can buy a drug in another country and it can be far cheaper or more expensive, so there is something to be said about uncovering how we price drugs here. absolutely, and the nhs has very big buying power because it is the one big buyer of drugs in the uk, as it were, whereas in the us there is a whole proliferation within the healthcare service. it means a lot of things, a pacemaker is a more expensive to buy in the us. christine the guard, you have met her many times, haven't you, over the years? one of my role models.
she is, absolutely, a force to be reckoned with. the new leader of the ecb. she says climate change is going to be a critical policy, as far as we're concerned, going forward. i think it is absolutely right, and we the governor of the bank of england, mark carney, he has been talking about this for some yea rs. if we been talking about this for some years. if we do not do something about climate change could lead to all sorts of financial difficulties in the future, with stranded assets... it already is. it is already having an impact. waiting for me, this is the central bank taking action, which i think is really good news, but what strikes me is that we have just gone through the anniversary of the alabaster movement in france, which was that people are saying, actually, we don't like the government intervening in this climate change stuff, we don't want you putting up prices which will affect me at my family income. —— yellow vest movement. it is an interesting
question. there is a mistake backlash against the government, against intervening to change things for the sake of the climate. the issueis for the sake of the climate. the issue is the carrot and stick, what will work? the idea is, increasing the cost of banks for life, for example, despite the fact that we are in the uk, and other countries, you are charged to use plastic bags now, which at the time, when those charges first came and it was an uproar, and now we're used to it. we are used to it, and in fact people are used to it, and in fact people are saying we need to charge more, because it is a huge issue. let's ta ke because it is a huge issue. let's take a look at the new york times and their analysis of the actions of the us congress, actually. it was politicians on capitol hill who initially put this forward, this spell. president trump has now signed it. tough legislation imposing sanctions on hong kong and chinese officials. so says the new york times. this is the idea that
every year they will be an annual review of how protesters are being treated in hong kong, by the united states. this story is quite interesting because we often see stories coming out of the us where it is all aboutjohn. trump has decided this, and he doesn't necessarily have, it feels, the full support of anyone behind him in the united states. this is quite a different story because this actually passed through both houses in the us, anti—trump, from some of the wording in here, it sounds like he was almost reticent to sign some of this, and one of the statements quoted in here is very interesting, from the speaker of the house, nancy pelosi. america is proud to stand with hong kong on the side of freedom and justice. a very political statement, not actually coming from trump. it is an interesting aspect of the story. and it isa interesting aspect of the story. and it is a very strong political statement, coming from the us, when it is right in the middle of very important trade negotiations with china, the world's second biggest economy, which, depending on where it goes, could have a big impact on the global economy in 2020. many
eyes a re the global economy in 2020. many eyes are on this at the moment. and of course there are quotes in here from mrtrump of course there are quotes in here from mr trump saying, actually, also supporting president xi. it is an interesting position for the united states, they have made this stance in hong kong, we all understand how hong kong is a very special part of china, there is much more freedom to access it, it is an important market. this is going to be interesting to see how it unfolds. yes, politics very much at the fore in these trade talks, it has been like that from the beginning, really. john boyega is looking at what has happened, he has confessed he lost the script to the next star wa rs he lost the script to the next star wars film which landed on ebay. a cleaner founded under the bed, wars film which landed on ebay. a cleanerfounded under the bed, it was his bed before he moved. what i find fascinating is that the queen had no idea of the value. it went onto ebay for less than $90. and of course he had somebody rescue it,
it... somebody who works for disney! what are the chances of somebody seeing that on ebay? it goes to show that actually, good old paper documents can be lostjust as easily as crypto currency. i love paper documents, personally. have you lost anything of great importance?” have. you can confess it here. what i lose most, i leave my ipad and the seat pocket of the chair in front of me on our plans. i have done that far too many times. have you ever got it back? only once, in switzerland. every other country i have arrived in, i never see it again. in terms of what viewers have lost, we have heard from a fear. we we re lost, we have heard from a fear. we were asking the viewers, what have you lost that has proved to be costly? matthew moss says labour lost the 2010 election and it proved extremely costly, very funny. we have heard from one viewer in australia whose name is
angiesfunnyish, that is her twitter handle. she says she has lost her big dignity too many times. very bridgetjones! clive james has sadly passed away at the age of 80, battling with leukaemia. a fantastic broadcaster who won our hearts in the uk. he was a big star here in the uk. he was a big star here in the uk, decades ago.” the uk. he was a big star here in the uk, decades ago. i grew up watching him. yes, from the tv personality, he was quite groundbreaking at that time. the crazy stuff he would have on his programmes. looking at the tv clips from other parts of the world, saying, gosh, look at what they do. and everybody is doing better now. it is often only much later, perhaps after somebody‘s death, when you think how revolutionary they weren't at home. they really change the face of media. a fantastic guy. i agree with you 100%. thank you so much for your company i will see you soon.
hello. yesterday we saw scenes like these across parts of scotland and the north—east of england, relentless rain. today the picture is going to gradually become drier, but that dryness comes with another change. much colder airflooding in across the uk. this is the low to thank for the wet weather. this front will clear south through the day. eventually the wet weather moving away, but behind it, the wind turns northerly and the cold arctic air sinks its way south into all parts of the uk, in fact, by the end of the week. here we start on thursday still with wet weather across north—eastern england, but also extending into northern ireland, parts of wales, eventually reaching southern england come the afternoon. by then the skies start to clear and things will brighten for the north. but those white arrows surging down are the first signs of the cold air trickling in to the south. in the north, six or seven degrees, but with the effect of the wind it will feel so different. it will look different as well. thankfully we will see the return of some drier and brighter weather. still some rain around to the south of the uk through thursday evening.
friday morning, most of it clearing offshore, but the legacy of the cloud will help to hold up the temperatures towards the south—west overnight. meanwhile to the north, it's a widespread frost, and in some more rural parts, quite a hard frost at that. the cold air in place, lots of fine weather as that frontal system moves off into the continent, but with northerly winds and some showers possible for our north sea coasts and drifting into the north york moors, some of them could be wintry, a few wintry ones for the highlands as well, and a cold one for everybody on friday, temperatures down to single figures and a cutting northerly wind. now, here's saturday, high pressure's still clinging on, but it looks like this system will try to eke into the picture from the atlantic. just how far north the rain will push is probably the biggest question. pretty windy and wet weather on the cards for the south—west of england and south wales through saturday. elsewhere it stays fine but it will remain distinct chilly, with temperatures at six or seven degrees, whereas we're looking at 11 in plymouth. by sunday, though, that will be sinking south,
and we should see some widespread fine weather all parts of the uk to enter the weekend. come the start of the new week, though, some frontal systems potentially toppling into scotland, bringing more cloud and outbreaks of rain, but perhaps some just slightly milder air as well. but certainly to start our new week, we are looking at fine weather, but a colder outlook than we have been used to as well.
